  1. I would say that most of the time that happened to me it was from a weak shoulder!
  2. I thought it was ironic that the price of the breecher is being talked about on this thread and the last thing on that page reads "Benelli - Performance Worth the Price".
  3. Nope... Mine did it too. That's why I bought the Benelli stock on another thread. I think the stock is ok (not OK) but there are defiantly shortcomings! ~ David
  4. I have shot PLENTY of high brass thru it. And, I have never had a problem with that, just low brass target loads. That said, I have not tried anything other than Federal target loads - yet. I'll try another brand. Maybe it will like that better? Although I have never had the thing "dripping with lubricants" of any type, I have used Enos' red Slide-Glide on the bolt area as well as a little Rem-Oil or equivalent. It did cycle these loads better after I installed the CarrierComp tube and Wolf spring. But as stated, I had a couple of FTE but my daughter who is learning had quite a few.
  5. I kinda thought that. I have not done anything to the M4 that would cause it to shoot differently with that shell/load than the first few times where I had so many FTE's that I just shot buckshot till my shoulder hurt. Then last time with my daughter we both took some lessons and it worked out much better. On my next outing with it I will concentrate on stance and stiffening up the shoulder to see how that works. Thanks!
  6. I took my 13 year old daughter to the range last Saturday. She wanted to shoot my Ed Brown Special Operations .45 (carry weapon) and the now finished Benelli M4. She had quite a few FTE's and I had a couple. I am wondering if this could be caused by a "limp shoulder" caused by a weak stance or not bracing enough. We were shooting Federal target loads as I did not want my daughter hating the M4 by having her shoot 00 or slugs the first time out ~ Nothing but smiles from her by the way!
  7. I use the Magpul M3 something or other. It is a single/double point convertible sling but I use the single point on another Magpul something or other attached to the top rail right behind my optic. I think all of this info is in my signature
  8. I'm going to try and put some kind of camo effect on it - NOT TAPE - but somehow put something on it that will not impede use but kinda hide the gun. I already have a call in to Nitro for shell/choke combo. Also, I'm going all"camp" in my clothing either. I will get a good face cover but for clothing, I'm going to use stuff that I can also wear on the street without looking like one of the Robertson's! My Holosight should work great especially at +/- yo yards.
  9. SilencerCo's new suppressor for 12ga. Shown off on an M4!
  10. Truckcop, Yep, that's the one I'm gonna use! The only other shotgun I have is a Browning Cynergy O/U. Great gun for clays and upland. But I think this will be perfect for turkey. I have a Bushnell Holosight on it and will zero/pattern it for 40 yds. But thanks for the info and slight ribbing as well! ~ David
  11. Seriously. Going on a private jet/guided turkey hunt in November at a full service all inclusive ranch for week with four other guys for a hunt of, at least my, a lifetime. I have a Benelli M4 and will use that. Still trying to to figure out what choke and Nitro shells combination. Any help would greatly appreciated. But do I have to have a shell limiter as well? Never hunted turkey before so SUPER newbie. ~ David
  12. I will say though; it takes two to tango. I tried doing it myself with the knees yesterday...no dice. Today I did it with one of my employees and it took less than five minutes. ~ David
  13. I got mine yesterday. By the way, they come vis USPS.
  14. Yea, I got my confirmation today as well...a little under four months. I have everything ready to get it installed once it arrives. ~David

    M4 mods

    I have the Raven stock on my M4 and love it. The recoil pad and grip are awsome and I can shoot slugs and Buck all day with just a little rosette on my shoulder an no bruising. I did not get the whole system. I just got the stock. I also have an AVA light mount and it was not useable with ATI's forearm. I got a FFT forearms stock instead. There are a lot of people here who seem to hate them and everyone has opinions. Just giving you mine.
